According to a report released by Chinese map service provider Gaode, it is expected that the tourist travel peak will start on Feb 6 and last for a week. Tourists by sea will arrive on Feb 7 and tourists by air will arrive on Feb 6, respectively.

Haikou Meilan International Airport will handle 22,071 flights and 3.5 million passengers during the Spring Festival travel season, which will last from Jan 21 to Mar 1. Phoenix International Airport, in the popular resort city of Sanya, is expected to handle 15,006 flights and 2.8 million passengers during this period. Red-eye flights will also be arranged for the first time in Meilan Airport from Feb 9 to 24.

The heat will start to cool down from Feb 10. The China Tourism Association suggests that tourists plan their routes in advance, taking weather conditions under consideration, and avoid the tourism peak. There is also the alternative of traveling around the island by railway. The island's looping high-speed line is 653 kilometers in length, connecting the 12 coastal cities circling the island.
